Fullscreen Issue
« on: October 12, 2013, 07:12:45 PM »
I get this error when staring up AWP in fullscreen:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Error setting display mode: CreateDevice failed (80070057). If you just started the game then delete your 'Postal2.ini' file and try again.  Otherwise check the Tech Support web site.

History: UD3DRenderDevice::UnSetRes <- CreateDevice <- UD3DRenderDevice::SetRes <- UWindowsViewport::TryRenderDevice <- UWindowsViewport::OpenWindow <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

I've tried messing around with the resolution of my laptop and the game itself (and of course deleting the .ini), but to no avail. The only work around I could find was disabling fullscreen on start-up which is hardly a solution at all. I've done some basic googling for this error and tried all of the mentioned resolutions and fixes, but none of them have worked so far.

The only thing I can think off is that maybe you could try and update your DirectX and graphic drivers.

Does normal Postal 2 work, or you get the crash only with AWP?

When I get mad I just want to go POSTAL.
